We'll get back to you on that one; not sure if magnetic field would give the same sort of response, but I'll place some magnets around the squid tank and see what happens .....

A sehkrit!

John, I've actually got a Masters students starting in ~ 6 weeks looking at these Sepioteuthis squid. I'm sure I can get him to do a little bit of environmental manipulation to check out a few of your ideas/queries. Fire away right here and we'll see what experimental design we can establish to determine what they are/are not capable of doing.
Cheers

Bernd Budelmann does a lot of work with octopus sensory systems etc and nuerosystems too. I haven't got my ref list with me but I'll try and remember to look out some refs.
